Week #103 - 9 Days

Wow so like 9 days left guys, it's pretty crazy not going to lie. I'm gonna see all your beautiful faces in no time at all! I am ready to come home the Lord has been helping me a lot with the transition.

We had our departing temple trip this week and it was so awesome, I was able to receive a lot of spiritual information for myself on my mission and home life. I was also able to have my departing interview and President Clark starting off by saying that he KNEW I had a great mission. He said that sometimes as a mission president you worry if someone had a great mission or wasted time. Then he said, I don't worry about you. I KNOW you had a great and successful mission. I was happy to hear that haha :)

This week I have just felt content and pleased with what I have done and gained a great spiritual confirmation of that and have felt like that time has come. I had a conversation with my companion about some things this week on humility and the importance of having that attribute. We talked about how even when some things make perfect sense and are logical people won't accept if they themselves are not humble and ready to hear and learn. "The wicked take the truth to be hard" sometimes we try to push things on people because it makes so much sense to us and we know it can help them but if they are not ready they truly won't understand no matter who is teaching or what approach you take. Jesus Christ was the perfect teacher, the perfect being and even he couldn't help some people because they were not ready to hear what he had to say. Be patient with those that struggle, all they might need sometimes is time.

Cecilia got baptized and so did Teresa :)

Week #101 - what does it mean to be valiant?

Hellooooooo guys I really don't know what to write today. I say that a lot but then I end up writing something. We have some people to be baptized and just continuing to work. One thing I will say, I HATE to hear anyone talk about having a testimony and then not doing anything about it. The Lord despises lip service. Remember that those who are not VALIANT in their testimonies do not inherit the kingdom where our Heavenly Father resides. What does it mean to be valiant? Well to put it simply, it means to act faithfully and diligently in what you believe. How could one say that they believe in the importance of church attendance and then not go to church?  

"For how knoweth a man the master whom he has not served, and who is a stranger unto him, and is far from the thoughts and intents of his heart"? -Mosiah 5:13


"¶Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven". -Matthew 7:21

Does one really think that they can say and not do and receive the same blessings of those who put forth the actions to SHOW their love. Please do not be that type of person. Look for things you need to do in order to improve and I know you will see greater happiness and success.
Love you :)
